Enjoy your 3 hour twilight sailing experience. The Wednesday twilight races are a non-spinnaker series and the Friday nights are a spinnaker series . It is a perfect way to unwind after a day at the office. Rushcutters Bay is only 5 mins from the Sydney CBD. Invite your friends to join us afterwards for a cold drink after the sunsets on our twilight adventure. Enjoy the stunning backdrop of the city skyline, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison and Opera House as we sail right on by

The moment you step onto your luxury yacht you’ll put on all your woes behind you, our skipper is also an accredited yachting instructor and veteran of the offshore racing calendar both here and abroad. We also run sailing lessons so once you are part of the crew you are welcome to develop your sailing experience with us as far as you wish.

We will arrange for all guests (and friends of guests) to gain access to the yacht club after the race has finished.
